Instant download of a free classroom scavenger hunt. Perfect back to school activity to do with students or on back to school night!
Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt, especially kids. So today, teachers, I have a new version of a free printable alphabet scavenger hunt for you to use in the classroom!
Why a scavenger hunt with each letter of the alphabet? The short answer is that a scavenger hunt is a great way to keep your students busy while still learning and the best part, is they are so much fun!
It’s also a fun way to get them to learn where everything is in the classroom and help with observation skills.
A scavenger hunt can also be a great way to open conversations about things and to hear what your kids think about the specific object and then a great teaching opportunity for you to tell them more.
Hopefully you won’t need to do a virtual scavenger hunt this year because of distance learning, but the list of items can always be sent home and the student can have family members help them.

How to Use the Classroom Scavenger Hunt
At the bottom of the post you will find the download button for the classroom scavenger hunt printable. The scavenger hunt activity is a PDF file.
Simple download and print as many copies as you have students in the class for the school year.
Hand them out either on the first day of school as an ice breaker or during the first few weeks of the beginning of the year as a class activity.
Have the kids roam around the room finding each item on scavenger hunt and then they can color in the circle or X it out.
The free printable has the word and image for each item from A to Z for the students to find school supplies such as a crayon, teacher’s desk, pencil, textbooks, etc. Some of the items you might have to place in your classroom just for them to find like a yearbook.
If you have younger kids, then the pictures will be very helpful!
Another good time to use the classroom scavenger hunt is as a open house activity. The student can pick up a copy at the door and with the help of their parents find the different things in the class or throughout the school even!
For some of the items, you can make a sensory scavenger hunt out of it and have the child touch the item with a particular letter and describe what it’s like. Using all five senses, they can describe what it feels, sounds, looks, smells, and possibly tastes like.
